Caption: Honeybee brain research. Honeybee (Apis mellifera) being fed during training. The bee is being trained to associate food with particular odours and produce behaviours in response. The honeybee's brain is used as a model system for research into behaviours like those associated with learning and memory. Researchers use the bee's ability to learn and remember odours to study the underlying neural mechanisms of learning and memory. Photographed at the Centre de Recherche sur la Cognition Animale (CRCA), Toulouse, France.
